This workshop is designed to empower writers with revision techniques to apply to memoir, essays, flash, short stories, or novels. Whether trying to revise a stand-alone chapter or considering the broader arc of your full manuscript, these techniques are graspable, effective, and empowering. We’ll cover thematic and developmental revision, sentence-level revision, and structural revision. You’ll practice each technique using excerpts from your own work in progress, which you should bring with you to class. You’ll come away with systematic tools to address areas for improvement, as well as a reinvigorated understanding of the joys of revision. This course is suitable for intermediate or advanced writers who have, at minimum, worked through a partial or complete first draft of a full manuscript and are ready to learn how to become their own best editors.
Katey Schultz is the author of Flashes of War, which the Daily Beast praised as an “ambitious and fearless” collection, and Still Come Home, a novel, both published by Loyola University Maryland. Honors for her work include North Carolina’s Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Fiction, the Linda Flowers Literary Award, Doris Betts Fiction Prize, Foreword INDIES Book of the Year award, and the Chicago Writers Association Book of the Year award, among other distinctions.
